"outsourcing," and "micromanaging" were all
mentioned repeatedly, not once did they mention "tits" or
"getting laid"? At first I asked myself, "What kind of
men are you?" And, (aside from the obvious answer that this is
San Francisco) it was at that moment that I heaved a tremendous sigh
of relief. It really does feel good to be needed.
at lunch, I was appalled. As I sat at a table, splitting my
attention between a copy of "Maxim," planning next weeks' YourMVP
update, and my Indian buffet, I couldn't help but overhear the
conversation of four businessmen at the next table. Good lord, man,
how our society's dinner time conversation has devolved!
the course of the lunch hour can you believe that, while
Magazine has a very definite place in this world, and those Dot-Com
losers could use a serious dose of what we have to offer!
poor schmucks spent an entire hour talking about work when they
should have been dishing on the important things in life. That's
where YourMVP comes in. We'll tell you what those
"important things" are. (And, I can assure you, they're not
giga- or mega-related.) Whether it's catching you up on what former
pop star Debbie . . . er, Deborah Gibson is up to or finding out the
inside scoop on what makes your girlfriend tick, we've got it.
suppose all of that might be lost on the group I overheard at lunch.
Luckily these professional types aren't YourMVP's target
audience. While San Francisco's Silicon Heads might not know their
hard drives from handjobs, we know that you boys surfing the web from
the luxury of your cubicle do.
you might be Joe Manager at work. But when five o'clock rolls
around, you want to know what's hot, what's not, and what to do, see,
and listen to over the weekend. Not to mention that you're looking to
find anything that will make that girl you've been eyeing at the
laundromat at least talk to you. And some gratuitous shots of hot
chicks never hurt anyone! Don't fear. YourMVP has you covered.
sit back, relax, surf on over when the boss isn't looking, and leave
the work to us. Be sure to hit YourMVP a few times a week,
read through all that we've got going on, and you will never, ever be
relegated to one of those boring tech-talk lunches.
Editor-in-Chief of YourMVP, that's my solemn vow to you.
